God allowed her to spend twenty-five wonderful years with her best friend and soul-mate Lee Bowman before calling him home.

She has made her children aware that her role is to spoil the grandchildren and believes that she doing that job very admirably.
She is a small town girl from Waverly, Kentucky where she graduated from Union County High School. She believes like many of you that she had the best parents in the world. They instilled in her at an early age that faith in God is the foundation of everything that you accomplish in life. She gives God the glory for giving her the opportunity to earn a B.A in Speech and Hearing Education at Bellarmine College (now Bellarmine University) and a Master of Art Degrees in Education from the University of Louisville.

Most importantly, she wants you to know that she is a sinner saved by the grace of God grace through the blood of Jesus. She lists this verse as one of her favorite verses in the Bible: Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
